FACT SHEET for: Final rule; interpretation and technical amendment.
SUMMARY: Under the authority of the Clean Air Act, the EPA has promulgated standards at 40 CFR part 63, subpart S (63 FR 18504, April 15, 1998) to reduce hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions from the pulp and paper production source category. This rule is known as the Pulp and Paper national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) and is the air component of the integrated air and water rules for the pulp and paper industry, commonly known as the Pulp and Paper Cluster Rules.
This action makes interpretive amendments to certain regulatory text in the NESHAP regarding the applicability of a 10 percent excess emissions allowance for condensate treatment systems. The EPA is making these amendments in response to inquiries received since publication of the final standards on April 15, 1998.
